With older Americans finding it increasingly difficult to maintain dignity and financial security, The Greenlining Institute in partnership with 89.3 KPCC sponsored a forum examining the growing crisis of economic insecurity for seniors of color. A key focus of the event was discussion of a policy and advocacy agenda aimed at ensuring that all older Americans have the opportunity for security and dignity as they age.
Panel was moderated by Laura Trejo, General Manager, Los Angeles Department of Aging.
